This is a real treehouse, not a stilt house, so in a strong wind the treehouse will gently rock much like a sailboat at anchor in a safe harbor.
Friendly hosts welcome all. LGBT friendly.
PLEASE NOTE: The Village of Schaumburg says that we cannot rent the treehouse under the zoning laws, but that we can rent a room in our home and let our guests use the treehouse exclusively, as an amenity. Thus, the pictures and amenities listed are offered free to guests, who will have complete private access to the treehouse, but the rental fee is for a room in the house. Thank you for your understanding.
WINTER LOVERS: We got talked into opening the treehouse in the winter and it worked out great. The hot tub works; the treehouse is warm; the stream and waterfall are running, and the winter garden and birdwatching are amazing! However, the outdoor shower is down for the winter, and the sink water is off. We put a 2 1/2 gallon water jug over the sink so there is water for teeth, coffee, etc. You can snowshoe at the Spring Valley Nature Center down the street, with snowshoe rentals for a nominal charge.
Guests should be age 21 or older.
